THINKING ON THE OPPONENTS TIME..... As you play you will notice that the computer may reply to your moves instantaneously. This is because the computer thinks while you are thinking, using the same time you are contemplating a move to plan ahead and develop its strategies. The IGOR will try to anticipate the move you are likely to make and calculate a response for that move before you have made the move. If it has guessed right, it will strike immediately and play the move it found while you were thinking.
